Are you a spook seeker or looking for a family-friendly event, because we have both!

Shoofly Farm is excited to be partnering with Mid-Cities Civic Association to bring you Chester's first-ever haunted hayride. All proceeds from this event benefit MCCA, a non-profit serving members of the Chester community, and Shoofly Farm's non-profit, Ranshaw Ranch, a rescue for slaughter-bound horses. You can have a great time while helping to support two local charities!

Haunted Hayride - $15 per person

may not be suitable for younger children , ride at your own risk

This old farm was established in 1879 and carries with it an unsettling past. Explore our barn on a self-guided tour to learn about Shoofly's haunted history before one of our guides takes you over to climb aboard a 15-minute hayride through the eerie and disturbing 50-acre woods of Shoofly. This hayride has unique experiences you will NOT get anywhere else! 

Not interested in riding through our haunted forest? Kick back and enjoy some food vendors, music, or roast some smores around our fire pit on the farm's main property while you wait for the more adventurous members of your party to return...hopefully.

Gates open at 6 pm

Hayrides start at 6:30 and run through 10:30 pm

Shoofly Spookfest - $10 per person

Children 2 and under are FREE

Looking for a less spooky experience? Join us for Shoofly's Spookfest. Admission includes our Hayride through the forest to see all of the props in the daylight. No devices, audio, or scare staff will be running or present, think of it as a quiet hayride with some Halloween decorations.

Back at the farm, experience our popular petting pasture and interact with goats, pigs, bunnies, and a miniature horse. Get your face painted, play in our corn pit or visit with our horses. 

Come in costume and trick or treat and shop with our independent vendors, offering an array of products and services.

***The first 200 guests can pick a pumpkin from our pond pasture to take home. ***

Spookfest will run from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday the 23rd and Saturday the 30th
